PC been working fine, turned on recently and NO GO (just lights and fans come on). I took PC apart, discovered Harddrive has gone (appears to be internal motor). Replaced Harddrive. Computer still does boot up. When I hook the hard drive up Ribbon and Power, the harddrive no go, but when I remove ribbon, the harddrive - I can feel it turn / run. I tried replacing parts (power supply, ribbons, etc.), but still no boot (bios, etc.)

sorry i could not understand u said it work fine but the pc doesnt want to boot. if its only the light issue then the connection of that light to the motherboard must be lossed or the bulb must have been fused
and if ur pc not booting then it ur power supply on *********** board problem
there are 4 condensors on the motherboard next to the northbridge/main processor heatsink that have exploded. buy a new mb. and replace the old 1 by the way you are going to need a new processor also. when the caps blew they took out the brains/processor. or buy a new pc. and specify an asus mb. either way you go...
What I recommend is you remove everything you could possibly remove from the laptop (HDD, mems, cd rom, wifi cards, etc) just to check if it will turn off even when it's not booting or posting. Try turning it on with just the charger and WITHOUT the battery and see if it stays on. If it doesn't, then most likely the mobo itself is the problem.
had similar problem on sony vaio. when power depressed, i could hear the cd drive turn a bit, the hard drive light blink once, and that's it. power light would remain on, but nothing else. I took it apart and resoldered all the main chasis grounds on the motherboard and shorted/resetted the board battery(memory/clock) and put everything back together and started up fine. got lucky i guess.
The motherboard controls the fan speed - and laptops often turn it off entirely when it is not needed. This sounds like a motherboard issue where an internal trace is broken and sometimes it makes contact, other times not. There's probably nothing you can do except replace the motherboard.
I have a akasa internal 3.5 card reader, 4 slots and a usb port, no fans. Installed ok and worked one time then dissappeared in my computer and device manager.
Looking at the plug it had a wire in where a dummy connector on the motherboard connects. Took the cover off the card reader and looked at the other end and on that connectot no wire. Reversed the lead and all up and running. No Quality assurance any more!
"PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE"
This means that the motherboard and harddrive are not communicating correctly, there is no data cable to connect the harddrive to the motherboard on a laptop the harddrive connecting plug is soldered directly to the the motherboard.
Either your harddrive is dying, or your motherboard has gone faulty. Laptop repairs are quite involved, if you are not familiar with taking laptops apart I would suggest you get profesional help with this problem.
If you want to have a go yourself I can point you in the direction of websites I use when doing laptop repairs.
